NORD Electro 5 - Output to main desk

Postby apg6815 » 07 Dec 2017, 13:55

Dear All, due to current limitations with our main FOH mixing desk, I can only run into one channel.
Would you recommend taking a mono lead out of the left output or am I better runnng out of the headphone socket?
Thanks in advance

Depends on which sounds you use the most. In my experience, the acoustic pianos get some funky phase cancellation when summed to mono, as they are stereo samples. Most other sounds (including vintage EPs) don’t suffer from this.

As my gigs tend to be ~70% acoustic piano, I go right channel out in mono situations, as this curcumvents any hardware summing.

Would running L and R into a small mixer, sending them both to one or the other channel, sending that to the board avoid the cancellation issues? I have done this to good effect, but is was a kind of a gut bucket ensemble, so stereo subtleties were not of paramount importance to us.

The kind of mixer I mean is the Behringer XENYX 802 ($60 or thereabouts) and its ilk.

Listen carefully to the octave below middle "C" when running a Nord acoustic piano patch in single speaker mode, before you gig. Good luck!

The Royal Grand sound nice in single speaker mode, including the octave below middle "C", but it does not cut through the mix in a covers or rock band as much as I would like.
